In the versions of Microsoft Query listed at the beginning of this article, when a query contains multiple errors, you will receive only one error message at a time. For example, suppose you enter the following SELECT statement
SELECT Customer.BadField, BadFunction() FROM customer
where BadField refers to a field that does not exist in the Customer table and BadFunction refers to an undefined function in the database.
The first time you run this statement in Microsoft Query, you will only receive one error message stating that the function is undefined. Once you fix this error and run the query again, Microsoft Query will then return a second error referring to the invalid field name.
This behavior is by design. Microsoft Query only returns one error message at a time when it is parsing the SQL statement being executed.
